that it now plans to roll out more sales. just a year ago this month, c.e.o. ron johnson took the wraps off his turnaround plan for penneys, forgoing sales in favor of everyday value pricing. he also broke the department store model by setting up boutique-style stores within a store from brands like levi's and izod. well, many analysts and investors are now questioning how long penney's board will stick by c.e.o. ron johnson. he was brought in after rolling out apple's successful store concept. >> i think it's too early to tell whether or not ron johnson is no longer going to be at j.c. penney. i believe that it is a positive move that they're going to bring back some of this couponing and sale activity. and, you know, j.c. penney hired ron johnson because of his legacy and because of some of the things he was able to do at apple, and i don't think they're going to give up on him just yet. i think time will tell. >> susie: tom, we'll find out more about how ron johnson's plan is doing when penney's reports fourth quarter results on february 27. so far, he still has the backing of bill ackma
clinton now and senator ron johnson of wisconsin. >> we were misled that there was supposedly protests and something sprang out of that and assaults sprang out of that. >> we had four dead americans because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they would kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? chris: remarkably calm and i would say charming performance by the secretary. but there were moments like that where the republicans, especially people like ron johnson, a very severe conservative, who really went after and she bit back. do you think that was a strong thing to do or show they could bait her? >> they obviously were baiting her and not inappropriate to express anger and frustration when you are angry and frustrated and the questions begs that. i think overall she performed extremely well. i don't think the republicans came after her did themselves any good. and for the most part, just for the record most republicans were respectful. i thought rand paul was out of line. if i were president, i would fire you, i think tha
johnson. jim, roll the footage of hillary stomping ron's johnson. >> no, again, we were misled that there were supposedly protests and that something sprang out of that-- an assault sprang out of that-- and that was easily ascertained that was not the fact, and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they'd they go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is from my perspective less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we will figure out what was going on in the meantime. >> okay, thank you madame secretary. >> stephen: "thank you madame secretary?" [ laughter ] she just spanked you, ron! i don't understand. [ laughter ] [cheers and applause] unless "thank you madam secretary" your safe word? [ laughter ] and it's not just that she got emotional, slapp

of how to lie to the american people. >> he is like a human whack-a-mole. ron johnson gets too close to him and your brain cells die. this is like the legacy of ron johnson. he attributes the warming of the earth to sun spots to gee logical spots of time. he is convinced that there is a conspiracy and there is none there. nor is it with hillary clinton saying it doesn't matter. he is obsessed with you know, he is obsessed with suspects who are no longer being examined and we know who did it. but he is following vapor trails to nowhere. >> i thought marco rubio did well i wondered if ron johnson was part of a one-two punch. he was going to really try to be -- men al migitry. >> it was striking to me. the sense of and this is bipartisan. the sense of paranoya anxiety that permeates every discussion of america's roll e in the worl and foreign policy. you would think we are consumed by consatant threats and occupiers. i'm nervous about this and anxious about this and i think it was a striking moment. it gives you a sense of what the cost of trying to moaintain thi presence and project is
happened and to prevent it from happening again. >> the center who asked question was wisconsin's ron johnson, and now he is speaking about his role in the hearing. >> i was trying to be respectful and was surprised about the reaction. the fact of the matter is, this administration has not been straightforward with the american public. again, i am getting pressure from my constituents to find out the truth. >> the congressional hearings are some of clinton paused last public appearances before stepping down. british prime minister david cameron is urging all british citizens in libya to leave immediately. by the against westerners has been mounting. the ministry said that after the neighboring hostage issue in nigeria, there is a danger to westerners. >> president obama is making moves this week to tackle wall street reform. he has nominated mary jo white to lead the securities and exchange commission. she spent a decade prosecuting white-collar crimes. her experience mr. well- positioned to implement the president's reforms on wall street. it is the amount that has sparked national c

description of the attack on september 16th. tea party senator ron johnson of wisconsin grilled secretary clinton over something she had nothing to do with. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened would have ascertained immediately that there was no protest? i mean, that was a piece of information that could have been easily, easily obtained. >> well, but senator -- >> within hours, if not days. >> senator, i, you know, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> number two -- well, no, it's the fact. >> no answer was good enough for senator johnson. eventually secretary clinton had enough. >> we were misled that there was supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easilies a center tained that that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i under

"i think she just decided before, she was going to describe emotionally the four dead americans, the heroes, and use that as her trump card to get out of the questions." the senate hearing room was full of republicans with presidential ambitions past and fu
's the politics here? i don't get it. >> well, i imagine that the republicans, rand paul, ron johnson on that committee were thinking to themselves, thinking ahead to 2016 and thinking we can get some footage here that can be used in attack ads against hillary clinton in 2016. now, instead what happened was that hillary clinton ate their lunch and walked out of that hearing room with a highlight reel of her own she can use in those ads. i agree that, you know, rand paul and rush limbaugh and people like that are not going to make up hillary clinton's mind for her, but she did look like somebody who was up for the fight. >> let's show some of that to remind people how good it was. here is secretary of state hillary clinton in a tour deforce at the house and senate benghazi hearings, which is probably what have the right so exorcised. she showed acuity, humanity, and charm. her republican questioners, not so much. senator ron johnson from wisconsin prompted secretary clinton's heated defense. here is where the secretary gives the senator no quarter. >> when you're in these positions, th
